Description

This class is used to represent conditions that must be satisfied in order for an authorization to apply

Details

enum PolKitAuthorizationConstraintType

typedef enum {
        POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_LOCAL,
        POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_ACTIVE,
        POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_EXE,
        POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_SELINUX_CONTEXT,
} PolKitAuthorizationConstraintType;

This enumeration describes the type of the authorization constraint.

POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_LOCAL

the session or caller must be local

POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_ACTIVE

the session or caller must be in an active local session

POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_EXE

the caller must be a specific program; use polkit_authorization_constraint_get_exe() to get the path of the program.

POLKIT_AUTHORIZATION_CONSTRAINT_TYPE_REQUIRE_SELINUX_CONTEXT

the caller must be in a specific security context; use polkit_authorization_constraint_get_selinux_context() to get the security context.

Returns :

Number of characters written (not including trailing '\0'). If the output was truncated due to the buffer being too small, buf_size will be returned. Thus, a return value of buf_size or more indicates that the output was truncated (see snprintf(3)) or an error occured.

Since 0.7


polkit_authorization_constraint_from_string ()

PolKitAuthorizationConstraint * polkit_authorization_constraint_from_string
                                                        (const char *str);

Construct a constraint from a textual representation as returned by polkit_authorization_constraint_to_string().

str :

textual representation of constraint

Returns :

the constraint or NULL if the string coulnd't be parsed.

polkit_authorization_constraint_get_from_caller ()

int                 polkit_authorization_constraint_get_from_caller

                                                         size_t array_size);

Given a caller, return the set of most restrictive constraints possible. For example, if the caller is local and active, a set constraints requiring this will be returned.

This function is typically used when the caller obtains an authorization through authentication; the goal is to put constraints on the authorization such that it's only valid when the caller is in the context as where she obtained it.

The caller must unref all the created objects using polkit_authorization_constraint_unref().

caller :

caller

out_array :

return location for constraints

array_size :

size of the passed array

Returns :

If OOM -1 is returned. This function do not create more than array_size constraints (including the trailing NULL). If the output was truncated due to this limit then the return value is the number of objects (not including the trailing NULL) which would have been written to the final array if enough space had been available. Thus, a return value of array_size or more means that the output was truncated.

Since 0.7

                                                         PolKitAuthorizationConstraint *b);

Determines if two constraints are equal

a :

b :

first constraint

Returns :

TRUE only if the given constraints are equal
